Depp defn has range; Lewis too; hated Dicrap-re-O originally, BUT I am quickly changing my mind the past couple yrs, ya know? He defn has potential to improve, and I like him in many roles lately.

Defn like Morgan Fr/Denzel...

You know who is often underappreciated is Peter Sellers; did some crap, esp later on, but he was a brilliant if unfulfilled actor and narrowly restricted (Strangelove is one of my top five movies, all time).

I have an even tougher time evaluating the gals of today; I just don't see JRoberts as the equivalent of BDavis or Ingrid, ya know?

I could have guessed Dr. Strangelove would be would of your favorites.

Sadly I can't think of any great younger actresses. After seeing Black Swan though, I gained a HUGE amount of respect for Natalie Portman. Always liked her since she her role in Leon (another one of my favorites), but she's been in way too much garbage, especially lately it seems. Your Highness? No Strings Attached? Come on Natalie, push yourself like you did with Black Swan. Aronofsky brings out the best in actors.

Some others that I like who are working today and still relatively young: (I'm making 47 the cutoff age)
- Cate Blanchett
- Hilary Swank
- Kate Winslet
- Amy Adams
- Naomi Watts
- Mary-Louise Parker
